The aspiring nurse was the beloved daughter of Robyn and Glenn and the sister of Keira and Bodhi. Parents and friends of Ms Bailey are invited to attend a service to be held at the Cairns Crematorium Funeral Home on Friday, starting at 9 a.m. More than 19 lives have been lost in the dangerous waters of Devil’s Pool since the 1950s, including Cairns teenager Maddison Tam who perished in the popular tourist spot in April 2020.
